Abstract: Network security is the booming issue inspite of tremendous advancements in the security aspects. Among the available network issues, attacks performed to breach the security against a particular host is also a major concern. In regard to this we preferred to study and perform DDoS attack in a coordinated manner that utilizes Botnet technology which attempts to show that it becomes difficult to identify the attacker by using this method. As a result by this it becomes a challenge to the existing attacker to invent an even more devasticated attack type to perform attack. In this method we propose to perform UDP-type attack. The introduced correlated DDoS attacks are more powerful than simple DDoS attacks which involves the combined effort of several machines in attacking a target system, in which an attacker generates highly correlated attack bursts from different sources towards a target router. The main idea behind it is to exploit the correlation among multiple groups of zombies scattered across different locations and have them aggregated to generate attack burst traffic at the target router. For this we use packet level simulations that demonstrate the UDP attack in a simulator test bed.
